I promised that I would try and keep you guys informed about fighting Internet Censorship SOPA/PIPA/ACTA etc. This month there is a boycott going on to protest the bill. The goal is to let the film, music, and media corporations behind these bills know how angry we at them for lobbying our government to what basically = the destruction of the internet. I think a lot of you have probably noticed sites that you like going down and material being hard to find over the past couple of months. You can thank these corporations for that.
How does the Boycott work?:
Basically the idea is between March 1st and 31st not to buy or download or watch any new movies, DVD, songs, CDs, Videogames or any other types of media that the entertainment industry endorsing these bill put out. A list of companies that the boycott targets can be found here:
What is the Boycott's purpose?
The purpose of the Black March boycott is to hit the greedy corporations behind the SOPA/PIPA and ACTA bills where it hurts the most...their wallets. Let them know that we don't like what they are doing and it will affect their profits if they keep it up.
I'm going to link to some more information about the boycott so that you guys can find out about it and decide if you want to be a part of it.

I'm definitely going to be participating in this and I really encourage you guys to participate in it too if you can and try to get others to participate in it as well. This boycott is a great way to combat bills like SOPA/PIPA/PCIPA and ACTA with the additional benefit of actually hitting the source of where these bills are coming from. Let's do what we can to protect our Internet.
